Look out, Slack — Google is uniting its Workplace apps with Smart Canvas

Collaborating remotely using Google products should get a little easier soon thanks to Smart Canvas, which aims to better integrate Google Workspace products like Google Meet, Google Sheets, and Google Docs.

Essentially, Google is pitching a future where all of its Workspace apps work better together. During his keynote at Google I/O today company CEO Sundar Pichai said Smart Canvas will debut this fall with new features that mimic contemporary remote collaboration tools like Slack. You’ll be able to type an @ symbol before someone’s name in a collaborative Google Doc to assign them to a task, for example, or start a Google Meet call directly from a shared Google Doc.
